Red Licorice - Which is best?  
Poll #1631750 Twizzlers vs. Red Vines

Which is the superior red licorice? Twizzlers or Red Vine?

Red Vines!!!!
You so crazy, it's ______________ (leave a note and fill in the blank!)
This question is triggered by the fact that I had Twizzlers for the first time in years and they are nasty.  I mean, they taste like little gobs of red rubber.  Eew.  I'm never going to touch one again.

Meanwhile, I love Red Vines.  I am often tempted to buy one of those huge tubs and just snack on them constantly.  Sometimes I wonder if I just associate them with success, and that's why I like them?  When I was a kid, teachers and camp counselors would often hand out Red Vines as rewards and bribes, and when I worked retail my managers would often buy a tub of Red Vines to keep in the back as little sugary motivators.

I'm not pretending either candy is high quality stuff.  But which brand do you prefer?

Red Vines are clearly the superior licorice. There really isn't any contest. Eating Twizzlers is only slightly better than chewing the insulation off of electrical wire.

If I eat half a bag of Twizzlers, I feel sick to my stomach. But I can eat an entire bag of Red Vines and be a-okay.

I love Twizzlers. But I also insist that they have to be *absolutely* fresh, and I won't buy them if they don't "feel right" in the bag, and only the cherry flavored ones. They go stale really quickly, and are pretty worthless after that, though. Red Vines taste too sweet to me, but I do appreciate their longer shelf life.
